From the bits I’ve seen of LG’s new smart TV plans, I’m loving how they’re repurposing webOS. It’s rare to see refreshing interfaces on tvs (and set top boxes).
I also agree with Dieter Bohn’s assessment:
Earlier I called webOS on smart TVs “a smaller ambition for a bigger screen” and after seeing how webOS works now, that assessment still stands. LG hasn’t solved any of the truly thorny problems in the living room. But executing well on a smaller ambition is still to be commended
I was rooting for webOS back when HP was using it on their Pre phones, and I’m still a fan.
